What is 5754 aluminium? 

5754 aluminium is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium family (5000 or 5xxx series) and is closely related to the alloys 5154 and 5454. As a wrought alloy, it can be formed by extrusion, rolling and forging but not by casting.

 

 

Basic properties

Aluminium 5754 has excellent corrosion resistance especially to seawater and industrially polluted atmospheres. It possesses a higher strength than 5251 which makes it highly suited to flooring applications and is the grade used for tread plates. It has excellent weldability although its brazability is poor. Its anodising quality gives excellent anodising properties.

 

Applications

5754 is typically used for tread plates, shipbuilding, vehicle bodies, fishing industry equipment, food processing, nuclear structures, pressure vessels, piping and tubing (for hydraulic application), boiler making and road poles.
